Finally, the first shakedown.

by on Sep.21, 2011, under Garage

28th of August a new event came up. We were desperately trying to get the car ready before that. Some last details still had to be done but no major stuff. We had to make sure the car was running properly so we didn’t lose face during Superlap so we planned a shakedown on Zandvoort circuit.
August 24 was the big day!!
To get the car really ready for track we still had some things to do. It was way to loud with the Ape garage custom exhaust, this should only take one lap before we get the black flag. Regulations are very strict over here in Holland according to sound levels. Another problem was a ticking fuel pump. That should be the first problem to take on. After that trouble really started.

Save weight……use carbon parts!!

by on Oct.09, 2010, under Garage

It was obvious that there would be al lot of “black gold” on our race car. Showoff Imports is the biggest European dealer of Seibon carbon therefore of course some nice products to show our customers. The hood already was carbon fibre but it was painted, we chose a new one. To save some weight on the back end the trunk should be replaced, carbon, what else! Probably the top peace of our carbon mania, the doors. They look great in real life, you have to trust me on that. Hard to capture on a photo but we sure tried.

Glass is also very heavy on a car, we replaced all the windows, except the front one (for now), with polycarbonate ones. They are made beautifully, just like the oem windows, just a hell of a lot lighter!

Testfitting the wide body

by on Oct.09, 2010, under Garage

Here we are again with a few updates. Due to the summer season with all the meetings and stuff we didn’t had much chance to make progress on the car. We are getting there but sometimes it goes slow.

To make the DC5 more like a properĀ  race-car we chose to change the entire look with a wide-body-kit. People have to notice some serious work is being done to our project. Since there are only a few wide-bodies for the DC5 we had little to choose from. We think the current one is the best looking one. It really was a pain to get it on the car. And for now it’s only on, the painter has a lot of work coming his way!
